The Green Crescent organizes the International Green Crescent Cartoon Contest to raise awareness and draw the attention of people in the world, in our country, and particularly young people to addictions.
The contest, the 8th of which will be held this year, will include cartoonists from all over the world who will convey to society the touching messages they create with a trace of humor between the lines.
The Contest’s Theme: Addictions are unnatural disasters.
As part of this theme, we expect cartoonists to submit humorous cartoons conveying the idea that addictions, likened to a fault line metaphor, pose a significant potential threat that can lead individuals, families, and society to destruction if preventive measures are not taken. The aim is to raise awareness and deliver an impactful and touching message regarding this issue.
– Deadline for submissions is set for February 9, 2024.
